it’s a wrap. mission possible cinch party features

There’s no dearth of creativity or inspiration on the web.  We covet. We pin. We try to re-create (often times, like me, for less) …

Google search “cheesecake recipe” and you’ll net 4,450,000 results.  Pillow tutorial? 5,000,000.  How to make a fabric flower? 4.5 million.  Numbered pails? 6,680,000.

… and, yeah, I’m scratching my head a bit about why numbered pails vetted more results than cheesecake recipe …

So while I’m not totally surprised about the number of amazingly creative projects that linked up to our Misson: Possible “It’s a Cinch” party last week …

… I am surprised at how those who linked up not only inspired me in theory and inspired me to pin on Pinterest

… but have actually inspired me to take action.  Actionable action.  Open my wallet and spend real-hard-cold-cash action …

For instance, take Jaime Lyn at Crafty, Scrappy, Happy’s  ink stamped pitcher …

When I saw this, I immediately ran out to Michael’s to get my very own stamp kit …

stampkit    stampchips

… and have been stamping and brainstorming about what else I can stamp ever since …

And while Laura at Top This Top That had me at “1” with her Pottery Barn knock-off numbered pails (which, by the way, puts Pottery Barn’s overpriced pails to shame) …

When I saw how Kristy at The Life and Times hung numbered flower pots from her fence …

image

I found myself scurrying to this website that she credited on her post …

image

… where I immediately placed my order for 8 flower pot hangers (with a special bonus offer of +2 for free) for $29.95 plus free shipping.

Now, over the weekend I emailed my sister-in-law about what I could bring for Easter dinner.  When I sent it, I already had these marshmallow kabobs from Angie at Echoes of Laughter in mind …

image

… you know to get the kids all revved up on a sugar high.  Tee hee.

But I’m guessing these sugary crazed kabobs will be showing up at many an Easter feast this year.  When I pinned this on Pinterest there was a crazy flurry of repinning madness.

Now, I’m still on the fence about whether or not I’ll be turning my hard boileds into undercover carrots like Kelly at Live Laugh Rowe

image

… but I will be sending this link to my sister-in-law (read: Easter dinner host) because she always likes to have some hard boiled egg fun at her Easter brunch place settings …

… and what’s more hard boiled egg fun than an egg disguised as a carrot?

I’ll cap off the “It’s a Cinch” features in the spirit of Spring …

… and in the spirit of my daughter’s room redesign …

… with this easy peasy fabric flower tutorial from Angie at Beneath the Magnolias

image

… she attached these to a lampshade.  And that is exactly what I will be doing in my daughter’s room …

If you’ve been featured, feel free to grab a button …

And if you’ve been inspired, please pin from the original blog and not from here …

And now I suggest you check out my Mission: Possible “It’s a Cinch” link party co-hosts to see who they’ve featured …

    You know I’ll be running to Michael’s for my own little stamp kit! Such a fun party – I love anything simple so I’ve been inspired to try lots of these myself.

    So glad to be hosting our party with a hostess with the mostest!

    Linda,
    Thank you, thank you – for making the pictures links to the original posts. I’m a click on the picture gal…and I ended up just where I wanted to be.

    Those are some really nice finds.
    Oh, how I’m trying to resits getting into the stamping thing.

    I mean, come on.
    If I buy a 2 inch set today, I’ll want a 3 inch set tomorrow.

    And, those tiny single letters in the “oh, I see you’re standing in line here at Michael’s and I’m just a bin of colorful stuff sitting here so you have something to look at while waiting for the cashier – no, really, you don’t have to pick me up and touch me – oh, out of interest what’s your initial, I bet there might be one in here if you dig a little” – those single letters…are the gateway drug.
